The Motown-inspired track peaked at number two when it was first released in 1994 but was kept off the top spot by East 17’s Stay Another Day.

It has since re-entered the chart on a further eight occasions.

Co-written and produced by Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff, the track first appeared on the festive album Merry Christmas and has generated an estimated $50 million in royalties worldwide since it was released.

All I Want For Christmas Is You returned to the Official Singles Chart in 2007, since when it has appeared in the top 40 every December.
